Wow, what an amazing looking build! The Bird cage Corsairs have always been my favorites. They were the model that earned the Corsair a rep for being problematic. 

 

Just a fantastic build, you should be proud. 

 

I love that bottom window. 

Thanks! Definitely appreciate it. I realized after posting (and you commenting) I never shot anything from the bottom. I may have to rectify that!

Thanks Kev, really appreciate it. John set a high bar; I didn't match, but hopefully it's near!

Ditto, which is hard to do since there are so many great ones.  Also, as I mentioned in your WIP thread, this is pure art at its finest in modeling and like any art, there won't be another Corsair that looks just like this one.

 

Bravo,

Chuck

Thanks Chuck! Compared with your work, not sure it's up there in the same airspace :)

Holy good deity that's an awesome Birdcage! Loved the WIP thread. I always thought your scifi builds were amazing but I'm seriously blown away at how awesome your real subjects are. 

The weathering is perfect.  It makes me want to buy one

It really is spot on, I don't think I've seen a better model. 

 

Looking forward to seeing you work your magic on the Dauntless. 

 

Thanks, definitely appreciate it. Dauntless might be a bit while I collect bits and bobs for it :)

Thanks Si! Pick one up, with your level of work (Star Destroyer anyone??) you'd build an absolute beauty of a Corsair. (Sci Fi build might be coming.....Bandai AT-ST is on the bench now as an option).

Well done Brett.   The weathering on this birdcage turned out well for you.  

Thanks Troy, appreciate the comment.....first time doing heavier weathering, it's a good start :)

Amazing!  A real standout, and that is saying something with all the amazing models round here. The paint and weathering are especially nice!
